Professional and personal attributes
Way of being or Therapeutic presence
Use several related concepts with empirical evidence to claim that therapists should address their own experiences and feelings.
Thus, this study explores 1) therapists' own experiences (professional & personal) and 2) their way of being present, genuine and real.
4 Interviews each therapist over 4 years (personal & process); 1-2 interviews with the client.
Case selection (good outcome; multi-faceted descriptions, openness, and self-reflection on both sides)
4 preliminary themes were discussed
Superordinate theme: Embodied listening
3 sub-themes encompass both sides: non-verbal presence; attunement; safe for authenticity.
Interation with the therapist's personal history?
The therapist used his personal and professional parts to revise and adjust his knowledge base for each new encounter or moment.
Embodied listening is realized based on the use of both (especially the personal part)?
Therapist's personal matters: similar ratings of the bond/similar feelings of the relationship.
An active and delibrate use of one's personal inner exprience that is useful to the patient and promotes therapeutic change.
Title: personal presence?
Abstract: ways of being and personal presence? embodied listening?
Why not hightlight collaborative actions and slef-disclosures?
Seperate the setting of the study and the current study in methods?
Case selection is justified?
Quoting is often confusing.
I believe that "subthemes are achieved by the therapist's capacity to use his personal inner experience combined with professional skills" is the argument point of this article.
I will develop a figure/model (how subthemes are achieved by the personal part) if it was my article
